Transition to High School

Welcome to the parents and carers of all our new Year 7 students moving up to Old Buckenham High School in September.

The staff and students of the school are looking forward to meeting you all and welcoming you in to our school community.

We hope the Year 6 transition to high school runs smoothly and we as a school are determined to ensure that all families have the support they need to be able to start with us in a positive way.

We are working hard to make your child's transition to OBHS as worry-free as possible and we will keep in touch, making sure that you are kept informed of developments as we go through this term.

You will have already received some information from the school and we will be adding to this transition page over the coming weeks, so please check back regularly. 

It is important that you complete an admissions form on behalf of your child.           

Admission form can be found here

Please also complete a friendship form for your child which can be found here.

This information will allow us to create form groups for Year 7.

These forms should be completed by 24th May 2024.
